Everyone in our house is sick.
If I sneeze one more time I am sure my head is going to blow off, so I am not really up for cooking a fancy dinner, or any dinner for that matter.
So what can I feed this lot that will fill them up, be reasonably nutritious and not take too much brain power or energy to prepare?
Since I can’t let that guy cook…
Here is my go to list for easy dinners.
Do them whatever way you like best. I like them poached, with a runny yolk oozing all over buttery toast myself, but you could also chuck together a quick omlete with whatever veggies you have on hand. Healthy, nutritious and almost free if you have your own chooks like we do!
Ah the joy of melting things between bread! The best thing about this easy meal that everyone can have whatever they like best in their toasted sanger so everyone eats it without complaint. Some of our favs include tuna and cheese, leftover taco meat, cheese and tomato, and the all rounder vegemite and cheese! And yes, we like cheese… I’m sick, it’s comfort food!
Ah yes, good old pasta. If I can drag myself into the kitchen to boil water I can usually manage pasta. Stir in a tin of tuna and you’re done. Or boil some eggs, chop them up and add them with a spoon of mayo to the pasta… mmmm, comfort food.
We love homemade pizza around here, but sometimes I just can’t face rolling out dough, and that’s if I have remembered to take some out of the freezer first, as there is no way I am making it from scratch on a day like today. But pizza made on pita bread bases are almost as good… almost.
So it looks like we’ll be eating one of the above meals tonight… well ok, not toasted sandwiches because we don’t have any bread! *Achoo!* Excuse me…. I am off to try not to sneeze into our food while I make it!
What’s on your easy dinner list?
